criticized by rand paul as not conservative enough for allowing the medicare expansion in the garden state. christie laid into republicans in washington for the government shutdown. >> you can refuse to run a state based exchange because you know the prosis a train wreck, as i have done in new jersey, but not then subscribe to the notion that your job then in running the government is to close it. your job is to run it. >> polls show republican governors are far more popular than their gop colleagues in washington. by contrast, christie's approval rating is in the 60%. rick scott is at the low end for republican governors, but far more popular than those in congress. michigan and iowa are the own latwo to establish partnerships with the feds. states should be allowed to design their own programs. >> we think this is the approach that's really going to improve health for all of our citizens rather than this one size fits all government approach which obviously is not working and is too complex and unaffordable, and consequently, i think it's going to collapse. >> rick perry, one of the firs
